it in the fascinating relationship between president obama and mohammed morsi. two mag ma tist pragmatists trya way to mediate this. you see it in the backdrop of surprising riots in jordan which will cause increasing problems, you have that changing environment which you know far more about. but the arab street needs something different. these governments now need to be more responsive to their people so that is an opening for a different relationship. and the president, no american president is going to criticize israel's launching of this war. but this is an opening for a relationship with egypt, with turkey, to implement a cease-fire that will monitor arms smuggling into gaza. that will monitor israel's relationship. overarching all of it, such a painful issue to discuss. overarching -- all of it is a history. going back at least to '67. of the united states' role, maybe, the united states' role as the enabler. as the political diplomatic economic military enabler of an israeli policy. in many ways, a younger generation is seeing israelis, that is not in the long-term benefit of the security of
mohamed morsi's move late last week granting really extraordinary powers. critics have called it an undemocratic power grab. today morsi meets with egypt's highest judicial body which has denounced his action. we're going to go now to matthew chance who is in london. good morning, matthew. i want to start with the news that really just happened. israel's defense minister ehud barak finishing up a press conference, announcing that he is resigning come january. any sense of whythis move is happening, and what next for ehud barak? he's really been a central key figure in israel for decades. >> yes, he certainly has. i don't think there's a great deal of surprise in this announcement. certainly within israel and the political circles that i've been speaking to, at least. it's something that mr. barak says that he wants to do for a long time but the recent operation by israeli forces in gaza delayed his announcement to do that. something he says he's been planning to do for a long time. this is a figure, as you mention, who's been in public office and public service for his entire
egypt is playing in this. how do you understand what mohammed morsi is doing. is he trying sophisticated needle and maintain egypt somewhat in the role of intermediary. >> absolutely. and he's trying to show off his domestic base. they are threatening him so he doesn't want to see this radicalization. there is enormous anger in egypt what is going on in gaza, you he's trying to preserve his base, preserve his relationship with egypt, assert his new role in the region. that's why he sent his prime minister to gaza. you're seeing more foreign dignitaryies visit gaza than has in the last four years. >> eliot: is there anything that he could really do? >> it's really striking that obama has taken the tone he has. before you pointed out that the british have said don't have a ground invasion. obama has not said the french work with qatar which is not--obama has been completely in their corner. why. he is not running for office. he doesn't need the jewish vote. he needs to build up credibility with israel as he understands now that he didn't in the first term if he is going to work with them i
is a live look at tahrir square. group of hard-core demonstrators vowing to stay until until mohammed morsi invokes a decree granting himself absolute power. this is how bad the violence got. thousands clashing with police and morsi supporters and new pressure on the president to back down and fear that violence will flare up. steve? >> reporter: the number of those tents put up by protestors has grown. they are intent to stay there throughout the week but the number of protestors on the street has declined dramatically over the last 24 hours. on late friday there were up to 40,000 people on the square. the protests did turn violent here in cairo and other cities. buildings torched. police cars torched. a lot of tear gas and pepper spray in the shutdowns between protestors and security forces. and morsi and the top justices. many chief justices here in cairo and across the country they will no longer to go work until the president repeals his decrease for a power grab. we're seen what could be a show down on the streets. that is when supporters on tuesday and saying that he is trying to be

, opponents set fire to the offices of president mohammed morsi's political party, the muslim brotherhood. there and elsewhere in egypt today, the president's critics and supporters clashed in the streets over his decree yesterday exempting himself from judicial review, and giving him authority to take steps against "threats to the revolution." morsi, egypt's first freely elected president, took office in june. in recent days, he'd garnered worldwide praise for mediating a cease-fire between israel and hamas. today, he told a supportive crowd outside the presidential palace in cairo that granting himself sweeping powers was necessary to prevent figures from the old regime from halting progress. >> ( translated ): i haven't taken a decision to use it against anyone-- to go against anyone is something that i could never be associated with-- or announcing that i am biased towards anyone. however, i must put myself on a clear path that will lead to the achievement of a clear goal. >> brown: the president's backers insisted the decree would be in effect only until a new constitution is approve

the president. mohamed morsi is accused of a massive power grab, slashing the authority of judges, barring courts from overturning his rulings. the secretary of state hillary clinton today told her egyptian counterpart that the united states does not want to see power concentrated in one set of hands. even as president morsi meets with egypt's highest judicial body which has blasted his actions. let's go live to cnn's reza sayah in cairo watching what's going on. lots of people in tahrir square. we have live pictures of that as well. i understand that morsi actually met today with some of these top judges? >> reporter: he did, wolf. a lot of people eager to see how president morsi responds to this political crisis if he would back down under mounting pressure, if he'd make some concessions. it seems forn now the answer is no. many viewed one of his decrees as essentially disabling the judiciary by banning anyone -- any authority, even the judiciary, from questioning, appealing any decisions he made since june. the question was going into this meeting, would he scale back on some of those d
is in cairo where she met with president mohamed morsi of egypt who's mediating the discussions. as secretary clinton carries the official white house message there is new attention being paid to the president's strategic options in the region. "the washington post" writes president obama's decision to send his top diplomat on an emergency middle east peace making mission tuesday marked an administration shift to a more active vist role in the region's affairs and offered clues to how he may use the political elbow room afforded by a second term. beyond a cease-fire agreement, the president could try to throw his political clout behind a larger, long-term solution here. so far, no deal has materialized between israel and gaza. also, a bus bombing in tel aviv could push both sides further apart. 19 people were injured, three critically, in what was the first terror attack in israel in four years. police say, however, the incident was not a suicide bombing. joining me now, former assistant secretary of state, p.j. crowley and from tel aviv, nbc news correspondent stephanie gosk. thank you, both
a lot of time talking about who has a real impact this year i think would be mohammed morsi who is on their list of people to choose from the first democratically elected president of egypt that, i think it was very important moment in the middle east it was an ally of the united states and it really have l. have an impact on the future of the middle east. >> bill: so you think everybody is talking about mohammed morsi? is that what you are telling me? is he on everybody's mind. >> i know you are mad because i didn't say bill o'reilly. don't get nasty and lash out. [ laughter ] >> bill: morsey is morsi is a minor figure right now. >> no. >> bill: he he is he may emerge in a major figure in a bad or good way. he could broker peace that would be good. he could try to take over egypt and rule as islamic dictator. that would be bad. i don't think he is quite there yet. it's not an absurd contention. all right? but if that is the best we can do, if mohammed morsi is the person of the year on this planet, then we are in bad shape. what about you, kristen, who do you think should be pe

with this muslim brotherhood path mohamed morsi. what are the charges he's interested in compromise? >> reporter: he has shown no signs of making a concession. the opposition says they will stay put in tahrir square. they say they won't negotiate until the president makes a complete stepdown. what we could see are parts of the government simply refusing to work. that's what we saw today with two courts. the judges saying we are not going to work until the president backs down. martha: steve harrigan, thank you very much. bill: who exactly is president morsi. he's 61 years old, born in egypt. but educated in the united states. got a ph.d in engineering from the university of southern california in 1982. he also worked for nasa developing engines for the space shuttle program. martha: interesting. president morsi is the leader of the muslim brotherhood he was narrowly elected in june of this year. he became a member of the muslim brotherhood when the organization was banned. one of his goals is to create a state ruled by islamic or sharia laws. the u.s. does not consider the muslim brotherhood a f
president mohammed morsi in a few light. no matter how the truce plays out, his reputation has been enhanced. paula newton looks at the winners and losers in this conflict. >> reporter: however crude the calculation, especially amid the civilian casualties, there are winners and losers in this truce, and they are already reshaping political alliances in the region. we begin in egypt and president mohammed morsi clearly underestimated his handling of what a mine field of competing interests has given him much needed political capital in both the arab world and the united states. >> puts a civilian president in egypt perceived as a weak leader has much, to everyone's surprise, delivered. >> reporter: then there's israel and its tenacious prime minister benjamin netanyahu. after israel targeted and killed hamas's military leader, he launched air strikes hitting more than 1,500 targets in gaza, dismantling some of hamas's arsenal of weapons. israel had a successful combat debut of iron dome. u.s.-funded defense shield that kept dozens of rockets from hitting israeli civilians. the counter point
to the government in egypt, the president mohamed morsi, that they would stop firing into israel. if that were to be revoked, that would be a violation. they would be breaking their word to the egyptians and that would cause some serious repercussions i assume, christiane, between the egypt government, muslim brotherhood-led government, and hamas. >> reporter: well, i was obviously talking about what's the perspective from this side was. but of course israel's demand was that there would be no more rockets and no more of that fire going into israel. that was something they really wanted. and of course israel does not want to see hamas resupplied through the tunnel network. that is still to be worked out. i asked him whether or not he got weapons and whether hamas was getting weapons from iran, and he gave me a non-confirmation confirmation. it's an open secret that they come through those tunnels. so that has to be taken in hand. we're not sure how that's going to happen, but obviously there is some egyptian role in that as well. but, yes, egypt is the guarantor of this cease-fire. neither sid
president mohammed morsi on his flight back from cambodia with tom done lyn done donalan on. they are choosing their words carefully. >> they will improve conditions for the people of gaza, provide security for the people of israel. >> reporter: we know defense secretary leon panetta has had a conversation with his counterpart reiterating essentially the determination of the u.s. to stand side-by-side with the israelis to work together with them on israel's safety and security. ainsley: are white house officials now able to turn their attention to some more traditional matters? >> reporter: they are. the president of course could have a phone call or two if foreign leaders if they are warranted. for now we saw the president and the first family going to the washington area capitol food bank to handout meals to young people, and also the elderly. more traditional activities for the first family. they were joined by the oregon state basketball team which is coached by the first lady's brother greg robinson. the president says thanksgiving is a chance to put it all in perspecti
in for jon scott. with egypt's president mohammed morsi, it is a big test for the new leader. steve harrigan is live in cairo. some are saying that mohammed morsi is the real winner here. you have all sides facing the same person. americans giving him high marks for his mediation, even some israeli officials praising the president. as far as the mediation goes, there were some concerns about which direction he would say, a long-term member of the muslim brotherhood and a public sympathizer of hamas. and in the end, he worked closely with u.s. officials about that days of violence. he had all those conversations with president obama. >> we are wondering. he is trying to change the constitution and give themselves more power. what can you tell us about that? >> some dramatic developments which have just occurred in the last hours, and we have had four days of protests. they could be extremely large tomorrow. what the egyptian president has done is basically said that no one can overrule any of his decrees since he became president in june. not even the courts. he also said any of those guilty
, including president mohamed morsi. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu, thanked morsi for his efforts to help broker the cease-fire. speaking to the israeli prime minister, president obama reaffirmed the united states and said it would use the moment to help israel strengthen security needs especially dealing with the issue of arms and weapons being smuggled into gaza. president obama in talking to president morsi, again, thanked him for his role and talked about the need to try to create and achieve a broader security situation in the region. president obama certainly spent a fair amount of his day yesterday dealing with this. the white house saying that secretary of state hillary clinton did play a pivotal role. one of the key things that they are pointing to that has come out of all of the talks and negotiations, alex, there's a question mark surrounding the egyptian president mohamed morsi, and that question mark has gone away. fe feel president obama's relationship has gotten stronger. he has been talking to him throughout this entire process over the past several days and they f
? the president mohammed morsi knows that this is happening? >> i will put it this way. the weaponry goes to the red sea from iran. they also come from libya and at certain points, they all cost to egyptian territory. certainly, there is a responsibility to step up to the plate and stop the smuggling. egypt has been constructed from the past. we hope they will continue to fulfill this role now in the future. jenna: i ask that question because we know how important this relationship is for your country and all of ours. i want to talk about "the new york times" article that he wrote about today. it was published and he said that hamas is not interested in peace. they want violence and they want to promote terror. it is not a rational thing according to the way that you laid this out. why negotiate at all through any here in this region? >> they don't want to negotiate at all, they don't want to speak with us. they want to destroy us. they don't actually want to just kill israelis, but jews throughout the world. they are a genocide organization. but they can negotiate with egypt and others w

, opponents rallied against mohamed morsi, he met with the senior judges monday trying to quiet the dispute over his effort to assume near absolute power. holly williams is in cairo. good morning holly. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. he met with several senior judges and told them that one of his new powers immuneity from the court would only apply to sovereign matters. the problem is that we don't know exactly what that means. it certainly won't satisfy his opponents. they're holding a large demonstration today in tahrir square, right behind me. you'll remember the square from last year's egyptian revolution which ousted the country's long-time dictator. one of the organizers of today's demonstration told me he is expecting half a million people. that seems ambitious. at the moment there are only a few thousand people out. some of president's morsi's supporters were planning a gathering but canceled that because they were afraid of clashes. we may see more violent confrontations as we have over the last few days. norah, charlie? >> holly, thanks. >>> hum
. tomorrow she will meet with mahmoud ahmadinejad and sit down with egyptian president with mohammed morsi. as the international community pushes for a cease-fire we saw some of the most intense fire yet as hamas continued to launch rockets and israeli forces slammed targets in gaza. they publicly executed six men they accused of being spies for israeli. they were forced to lay on the ground and then they were murdered. one of those bodies were tied to back of motorcycle and dragged through the streets. david lee miller is live in southern israel. >> cease-fire, what cease-fire? in fact if anything is taking place it's been an escalation. today alone militants in gaza fired at least 130 rockets towards israel. one of them landed in a tel aviv suburb. it hit an apartment building but no serious injuries. this was the farthest into israel. also today, there were sirens in jerusalem as it turns out. a rocket there landed outside that city. ironically landing in a palestinian village. throughout the day there was barrage after barrage in southern israel. i talked to one man a volunteer ambulan
clinton can pressure hamas and can be persuaded by mohamed morsi her chances are pretty good. if she cannot, then i think this will be another round of fighting, potentially even a ground war. i don't think israel wants a ground war. i don't think hamas would mind a ground war. a much more bloody -- would get involved. not the egyptian government, the egyptian people would start streaming in here. the arab media that was so influential in bringing down a arab dictatorships here would go into a state of -- that would benefit hamas. so i think it really depends on how much influence hillary clinton can have over morsi and how much influence morsi can have because even though this area here is being pounded militarily and there was the heaviest air strikes tonight that we have seen thus far, hamas feels -- >> richard engel, live from gaza. thank you. thank you for staying up in the middle of the night. stay safe. >>> thinking about the leverage here that the american government has, we all judge our diplomacy of our own government based on what outcome they are able to achieve, but in a
air force one and speaking to mohammed morsi who received high marks for his constructive role in the cease-fire, although a critic offered this praise. >> i think actually it may be president obama who gets more credit here. i think he pressured both egyptian president morsi and prime minister netanyahu to come to this deal, because i think he was afraid that the conflict would expand. >> today, morsi granted himself far reaching powers, placing all of his decisions, past and present above judicial oversight and protecting the islamic dominate panel of the constitution. although morsi is a member of the brotherhood, padilla is denouncing peace offerings, and says that jihad is mandatory for muslims and calling on them, quote to back your brothers in palestine. a former push administration official says that mr. obama must be helpful and attentive to the middle east, but that only goes so far. . >> he can't infuluence parties that do not seek agreements between themselves because the agreement is only as good as the parties themselves. and if one feels they have the upper hand
me this, i know that mohammed morsi is planning to meet tomorrow with his opponents, what can you tell us about that planned meeting? >> he's meeting with some chief justices here in cairo and it's the first seen of a potential move or sign of backing down by the president, but too early it call yet. as you know, many judges across the country have gone out on strike after the presidential decree that basically put the president above the law, above the courts, but as far as any talk with the opposition go, opposition figures say that's out of the question and there's going to be no dialog until that decree is revoked and they are he' planning a million man march, a protest for tuesday, harris. >> harris: wow, a million man. quickly before i let you go, steve, in the past when we saw revolution in that country a year and a half or so ago, we saw police forces, we saw military intervention. what is the latest on authorities there on the ground? >> right now it's just been police forces on the ground and really a back and forth on a low level with the protests. the real concern is a

in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night with egypt president mohamed morsi about working together to preserve peace and security in the region. tension between israel and egypt's new islamist government has increased since the attacks with egypt recalling its ambassador to israel in protest. richard haass, also an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council last night. sift through this for us. how big is this? how significant is this in the middle east right now? >> well, it's big for lots of reasons, because it's not happening in isolation. one is you have the largest military clashes between israel and hamas in, what, four year now, and it's not going to stop. at times it doesn't matter in the middle east exactly why things begin. over the last few months there have been hundreds of rocket attacks, now this, then retaliation. it just happens. second of all, it's happening in the absence of anything political. there's no dialogue going on whatsoever between israelis and palestinians. this can't substitute for this. thirdly, egyptians withdrew their ambassador. since
of the blame, mohamed morsi appears to lay some blame on the israelis. is he torn with his fellow islamists and the need to maintain the treaty obligations with israel? >> martin, if he isn't yet, he could be soon, and that's, of course, the real danger here. if this thing goes on just for a short time, then maybe we wind up okay. but if it goes on for days or weeks, like the 2008-2009 war that ambassador ginsberg referred to, then i think all bets are off as to just how long the egyptian regime can really sustain this stance of sort of being between the two. you know, in a broader sense, of course, the cease-fire that hamas had respected for a number of years never reflected a fundamental strategic change by hamas. it was more a temporary recognition that fighting the what i they had been before wasn't doing them any good. on the other hand in their own eyes, the cease-fire isn't doing them any good either. and so i think they're willing to maybe, as mark ginsberg said, maybe, you know, roll the dice a little, hope with the morsi government in place, maybe things can be different and maybe

in the summit meetings then. from there, he spoke with benjamin netanyahu and mohamed morsi about ongoing fighting in ga gaza. and hostess isn't liquidating just yet. they'll be in mediation to work out differences. back to "hardball." >>> we're back. according to some reports, the president could name a successor to hillary clinton as early as next week. i think it could come this week. it's a decision fraught with risk. "the new york times" reported yesterday that the white house aides say the president's favored candidate is susan rice, the current ambassador to the u.n. but republicans like senator john mccain and lindsey graham have threatened to filibuster her nomination thanks to her appearances on tv following the benghazi attacks. would the president risk starting off his second term with a decision that would likely lead to a bitter confrontation fight? richard wolffe is vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. he's also an msnbc political analyst. and jay newton-small is a diplomatic correspondent for "time." richard, i want to get your sense of the president's thinkin
administration officials that the president's relationship with mohamed morsi really got stronger throughout this process. so, they're encouraged by that. they are also saying secretary clinton really played a key role in these negotiations, so they are cautiously optimistic. >> two thoughts on that. i mean, obviously, secretary clinton's role, it was, you know, a high-risk decision to send her there. she's managed to come away with a deal. obviously, she and the president deserve a tremendous amount of credit. also this idea of strengthening the relationship with morsi because what i've heard from administration officials is they're concerned they haven't had the leverage with morsi they may have had with the previous head of egypt. are you picking that up as well? >> reporter: absolutely. and i think that was the concern sort of entering this process of trying to broker a cease-fire. of course, the relationship with morsi is quite different than it was with mubarak. they didn't know how this was going to play out. we saw that president obama was in continuous talks with morsi. he spoke wit
earlier, the real man to watch here is mohammed morsi who is the safeguard, the guarantor of the hamas side of the cease fire agreement. he will be one of the key factors over there in 48 hours, 72 hours about whether or not this cease fire holds. all indications now in the morning new york time looked very dicey. i think it's been two or three hours. it seems like everybody is not going to hopefully turn this into a cease fire breaking event. we'll have to see. >> you talked about mow home home whom mid morsi. when it comes to enforcing what's happening miles away along this border, who is it that will do this? who is it that judges, yousef, whether it's a violation? >> sure. the bigger problem is it was very big. the other part of the problem is while the egyptians have good relations with israel and hamas, they have far more leverage over hamas. the so-called buffer zone that we see is exclusively on territory inside gaza. there's no buffer zone on the israeli side. there's no protection for the people of gaza from the israelis. that so-called buffer zone takes up 50% of the arabal
: president mohamed morsi, gave himself almost unchecked powers and sent thousands into the streets, the people who have been helping to topple hosni mubarak, now, who they are calling the new egyptian pharaoh. are we headed for a you new islamist coup and islamist state in egypt. >> it could be headed that way and also could be headed back to a military takeover, if things went in the wrong direction. you could also see a scenario where there is continued chaos. i'll never forget, chris, after i was in egypt, i met with the young people who made the revolution in the square, and, a young woman said, senator mccain it's not the first election we worry about, it's the second. that is what we have to worry about, a repeat of the iranian experience in the 1970s, and -- but, what should the u.s. be doing, saying, this is unacceptable and thank mr. morsi for his efforts in brokering a cease-fire, which is, by the way, incredibly fragile but is not what is acceptable, what the american taxpayers expect and our dollars will be directly related to the progress towards democracy, which you p
from the atlantic. mohammed morsi abe lincoln in disguise or another mubarak? talk about two choices. and the stock market didn't think this was a good move either. it plunged 10%. stocks opened down today and barely moved up by the end of the day. so this new president in egypt in which the united states has placed so much hope, starting to look too much like the dictator he replaced and is he the leader of an islamist government that will become more and more extreme, threatening america? on the phone with us tonight, amir hamsami, the founder of egypt's freedom party, and ed hussein joins me. ed, i want to start with you. morsi was credited with brokering that cease fire between israel and hamas. it seems within hours, he swept away with all these powers, saying his word will ride over judges. was he emboldened taking advantage of his success? >> without doubt, he knew he had enough political capital to make this move and just before, he had signed a deal with the imf for a $4 billion loan program. he thought he had enough credibility now to go after the judges that it was rumored
jim's top courts today suspended their work in protest of president mohamed morsi's decr decree. joining me to talk more about the middle east is ambassador dennis ross, an expert on the region. he was the chief middle east negotiate for president clinton and president bush and served as a special adviser for president obama. he is a mideast analyst. both supporters and opponents are planning more giant protests on friday as well as sad. what's your assessment of the situation and the back and forth between the two sides? >> well, i think what we're seeing is is that this is a new egypt. anybody who thought that president morsi could come in and act like president mubarak and could rule as opposed to govern, there's no doubt that's not the case. there's no doubt he miscalculated. he thought in the aftermath of brokering a ceasefire between israel and hamas, that gave him a new standing internationally, gave him new stature in the region, and it did and he could somehow use that to convert it into new power within egypt himself. what he's finding is in fact the new egypt is an eg
